Cirrhosis and complications are responsible for over 40,000 deaths per year in the United States, with direct health care costs of more than $ 1 billion. Several trends are expected to to produce a further increase in the death and disease from cirrhosis, including the aging of the population, the epidemic of obesity, fatty liver disease alcoholic leads, and the development of liver disease in patients with chronic hepatitis C.
Noninvasive Testing for cirrhosis Avoids liver biopsyThe results showed that a specific measure of the blood flow in the spleen – the splenic artery pulsatility index – highly accurate in identifying fibrosis and cirrhosis was. The authors believe that to be with further study that could SAPI also a useful indicator of fibrosis / cirrhosis in other groups of patients with kidney disease. Continue reading

JOE Verghese: Yes. I mean, there are probably two possible explanations, and probably more, but the two main explanations for our finding. One is a so-called cognitive reserve theory, which means that to do by engaging in those activities that you build a buffer or reserve in the brain by increasing the connections between cells and promote new cell growth – and that way, if you do the disease, they are resistant to the effects of the disease for a few more years. Then you must only tell the manifest illness, three or four years later.

We are beginning a dictionary, which regulates neurogenesis assemble. By understanding at every stage of at every stage of development, we hope one day to manipulate human nerve cells so that to withstand the brain neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s. .. Dr. Eisch studied different stages of neurogenesis, or the formation of new nerve cells in the brain of adult mice and found that the absence of Cdk5 prevents maturation of neural stem cells. They and their group used advanced genetic engineering in mice, where they turn off Cdk5 within nerve cells could in a certain region of the brain where born born to create. Group found that when Cdk5 stem removed from immature nerve cells, normal cell division, but the nerve cells never reach maturity.
